The White House announced in June that the federal government would use “prosecutorial discretion” in allowing younger illegal aliens to stay in the United States and obtain work permits. The administration, however, said the policy does not grant illegals citizenship…
“They call it discretion but it’s not our discretion,” Crane told Fox. “We have no discretion.”
Crane told Fox about a case involving a longtime ICE agent who arrested an illegal alien who was not a “primary target.” The agent’s superiors ordered the 35-year-old man released – even though he did not meet the criteria listed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The officer would not follow orders and is now facing a three-day suspension, Crane told Fox, and the illegal immigrant – with 10 traffic violations – was released.
